Hastings Street Blues: The economic roots that contributed to Detroit's worst summer - Crain's Detroit Business

Monday, June 19, 2017

Comerica Park and Ford Field are today downtown, said Detroit historian Ken Coleman. His book, Million Dollars Worth of Nerve, profiles the power-players of Paradise Valley and Black Bottom, a residential neighborhood that existed generally where Lafayette Park is now, bounded by Gratiot Avenue to the north, Congress to the south, the Grand Trunk Railroad (the present day Dequindre Cut) to the east and Brush Street to the west.Exactly where the neighborhoods started and ended is up for debate, Coleman said."It's not like these communities were codified in boundaries at City Hall. They were loose in general."Still, what's clear is that the two areas were vibrant, bustling with activity.Joe Louis co-owned a restaurant, the Brown Bomber's Chicken Shack, with Sunnie Wilson on East Vernor (it reportedly lost the legendary boxer $40,000, according to LIFE magazine).Charles Diggs, later the state's first black state senator, was a leading funeral home owner there, as was James Cole, whose funeral home business survives to this day.

Fewer people have insurance or the money to pay for their own or a loved one's burial. More people are dying from drug overdoses or while estranged from their families.Center Township Trustee Kay Walker said her office has dealt with about a dozen of what used to be called "pauper" burials so far this year. Hand in hand with that number is the number of people who die with no next of kin, or at least none willing to take responsibility."Unclaimed bodies are becoming a bigger problem for us," Delaware County Coroner Scott Hahn said.David Cox, president of Meeks Mortuary, which handles many of the indigent burials, said, "We probably average three or four trustee services a month."It's a depressed area," Cox said. "People have no money to live and they have no money to die."Buried at taxpayer expenseThere's a section of Beech Grove Cemetery, the city-owned final resting place for thousands of people, where people are buried at taxpayer expense by the trustee's office. Some of the graves have markers and tombstones like those you would see in every section of the historic cemetery. Some are unmarked and some have been commemorated over the years by homemade wooden crosses with the hand-lettered names of the deceased.Buy PhotoGravesites at Beech Grove Cemetery Tuesday afternoon.  (Photo: Jordan Kartholl / The Star P...
